That’s something y’all anglos can’t even fathom: second-person pronouns. Y’all just have “you” (the singular plural 🤦🏻‍♀️ since you dropped “thou”. There’s even the plural singular plural “y’all” these days). But in the Swedish language we’re plagued by the knights who say “ni”. With one cut they make it clear that they see me as an old stuck-up snob who’ll be the first up against the wall when the revolution comes.

Use “du”!
